A clipping circuit works by the switching action of a diode when it is used in a circuit with a source voltage that changes polarity.

In the forward direction, the diode's voltage is added to any dc value that is in series with it. If the source voltage is greater than the dc value at a particular instance, the diode will limit the output to the dc value. Otherwise the output voltage will equal the input voltage.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of clipping circuit?

In what context? Assuming signal transmission, the main disadvantage of a clipping circuit is that the data transmitted at values outside the circuit's range will be "clipped" (for example, if the clipping value is 20V, and the signal is 23V, the output will be 20V). This is esp. visible with audio circuits, and with electron tube circuits in general. The main advantage, at any rate, would be that a clipping circuit would serve as, say, an overvoltage protection for sensitive devices. But that is a bit of guessing on my part. If the circuit (or circuits) are to be designed properly, I would say that a bridging circuit should be built instead - a circuit that would "shake hands" between two other circuits, bringing their respective levels to a level common for both, or by translating between the two.

What is meant by clippers in electronics?

Clippers are diode, wave-shaping circuits. The output of clipping circuits looks like a portion of the input signal is clipped off, kind of like a limiter. A clipping circuit requires at least two basic components, a simple diode and a resistor. The output wave form can be clipped at different levels by interchanging the position of the diode and or resistor, and changing the voltage of the dc battery.
